'Amazing' Guardian From the on-screen experts for BBC2's Cat Watch, and based on their groundbreaking research - this is the ultimate guide to making your cat a happier, more sociable animal. The idea of a trained cat is a contradiction in terms, isn't it? Naturally solitary, wary, easily threatened by newcomers, they are attached to place rather than people, and much of their 'antisocial' behaviour arises in situations where that attachment is threatened. But, as cat experts Sarah Ellis and John Bradshaw argue, such stress-induced behaviour can be prevented, reduced, even eliminated, by training. A comprehensive and engaging step-by-step guide, The Trainable Cat will help you to help your cat negotiate the complexities of everyday life: to enjoy living with humans - including new babies and lively toddlers - and other pets; to answer to their name; settle into a new home; and to overcome the anxiety of a visit to the vet. You can train your cat to do what is in its own best interests - even when its instincts tell it otherwise. 'I doubt you'll find a more well-informed or scientific book on cats that better shows you how feline thinking works' The Times

MEDIA REVIEWS
I doubt you'll find a more well-informed or scientific book on cats that better shows you how feline thinking works -- Carol Midgley * The Times *
Most people think that cats cannot be trained, but experts John Bradshaw and Sarah Ellis beg to differ ... They explain how even the grumpiest of cats can learn to enjoy being groomed * Lady *
In addition to improving the cat's welfare, the training enhances the relationship between owner and animal ... It's amazing what a few treats and perseverance can do... Though the training book is now rather dog-eared, the cat has left it mercifully unchewed * Guardian *
